From Paul Gauguin visiting Vincent van Gogh in the south of France in October 1888 to the first encounter between John Lennon and Yoko Ono at a London gallery in November 1966.
In “ Mit Platon und Marilyn im Zug”, writer and philosopher Helge Hesse takes a look at the meetings of some oft he most astonishing personalities in history. The author of “Hier stehe ich, ich kann nicht anders. In 85 Sätze durch die Weltgeschichte” has once more managed to create an extraordinarily intimate atmosphere without getting stuck in trivialities.
“Mit Platon und Marilyn im Zug” is out now by Piper, the publishing house which recently released a brilliant football biography.
“Miro” is Ronald Reng’s attempt to reveal the key to success of famously unassuming ex-striker Miroslav Klose. Born in Poland, Klose developed into one of the most effective goal scorers of his generation. He found the net a stunning 71 times in his 137 German national team appearances.
Reng – who spent three years on researching for “Miro” – previously wrote about FC Barcelona, agent Lars Mrosko and late Hannover 96 keeper Robert Enke.
